Came across the lookbook.nu page of blogger Moti Ankari today. He blogs via themetro-man.com. Very stylish looks. Definitely worth checking out if you’re a guy looking for ideas to improve your style or if you’re a girl looking for ideas to help your guy improve his style. Note to ladies: Suggesting to your guy how he should dress could come off a little on the controlling or mothering side. So only help your guy if he has asked for your help and if you have a keen enough sense of style when it comes to men’s fashion to justify your input.
This is blogger Moti Ankari wearing a navy flannel suit. He’s the inspiration for this post “How to wear a navy suit”. His outfit, which he blogs about in a post titled “Holiday Dressing” pairs a navy blue flannel suit with a burgundy v-neck sweater. The shoes are a pair of burgundy Oliver Sweeney ‘Hasketon’ Spectator Shoe brogues. The other pieces are a Stetson hat and a pair of blue socks with yellow stripes. Additional accessories: a pair of sunglasses and a watch. (See more pics featuring this look via The Metro Man blog)
How to wear a navy suit
You will first need to have a navy suit jacket and matching trousers. It’s not necessary for it to be our featured selection Paul Smith Navy wool mohair blend formal suit which is a bit on the pricey side and possibly a bit more formal than needed.

Classic suit trousers featuring a button and zip fly, a hook and eye fastening,a waistband with belt loops, side slit pockets, two back buttoned welt pockets, a straight leg, and a slim fit.
You will need a burgundy sweater. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a v-neck sweater although the v-neck definitely helps to give Moti’s look a laid back casual appeal.
An essential V-neck sweater is crafted from pure, hand-loomed goat cashmere sourced from the extreme climate of the Gobi desert. All ribs are hand-lined to eliminate bulky seams, and signature John W. Nordstrom® suede piping lines the back neckline
You will need a pair of burgundy shoes. The Oliver Sweeney ‘Hasketon’ Spectator Shoe would make an excellent choice.
If you’re feeling so inclined you can add a hat to the look. We’ve selected a brown Bailey Fedora.
